I love when wildlife is as curious about me as I am about them. So why are cardinals red? The color of cardinals plumage depends highly on their diet. Cardinals get carotenoids from the seeds and fruits they eat. These carotenoids accumulate and express the red pigment in the cells responsible for the growth of feathers. The deeper the coloration of red the more carotenoid rich their diet is.

The Green Heron stalks prey. Fairly camouflaged, these birds were on the hunt. Stocking up on small fish before the recent hurricane. Lettuce Lake Park, Florida.

This might be one of the most amazing photos I've gotten. I'm about 99% certain it's a Cooper's Hawk, as opposed to a Sharp Shinned Hawk, due to the head shape and leg size. He was in the tree beside my patio, having a meal out of a White Winged Dove. Really incredible sight. #coopershawk #hawks #raptors #birdsofprey #birds #birdwatching #birdoftheday #birdsofinstagram #birdphotography #backyardbirds #birding #ornithology #wildlife #backyardwildlife #backyardbirding #floridabirds #floridawildlife #nikon #nature #naturephotography #nikond3300 #tamron70300 #nikonlove #nikonphotography #photography #animals #animalsofinstagram #southflorida #igers #igersmiami

Plant Hopper!

I haven't been able to post at all these last 2 weeks thanks to Hurricane Irma and then moving out of state. But now we're settled in and I should be able to get into a routine.

Went to take the dogs out,  and we wound up meeting our newest tenant! May I introduce you to Mr. Lil' Dude. I'll let him stay, on account of him eating mosquitos 😉👍😃

I think it's a "Squirrel Tree Frog" judging from the UF Wildlife article that I found here: https://goo.gl/anH3Ey

Florida wildlife: Liguus tree snail at Matheson Hammock Park. This little fellow survived the storm still attached to a broken branch. He was relocated back into the depths of the Hammock to begin his climb back up into the canopy. #liguustreesnail #mathesonhammock #charlestorreysimpson #floridawildlife photo by: Philippe Bonnery.
Mr Trash Panda was passive-aggressively hissing at us for getting between him and the smashed piece of cake on the sidewalk.  #FloridaWildlife #TrashPanda #raccoonsofinstagram #CampusLife

Well, the babies are now by themselves. ☹ Momma left them shortly after the hurricane passed. But, so far, all 11 of them are still hangin' out together! I'm pretty sure they've now followed the momma to the lake the next street over. Finally, they know there's a lake there! I think! #ducks #bigbabyducks #cuteducks #bigbabyducksontheirownnow #wildlife #floridawildlife #nature #naturelovers
This little guy walked right up to the front door of my building. So cute! #floridawildlife #critters #efsclife #itscalledbcc
This pretty little fellow was nice enough to let me take his picture outside of work #butterfly #flowers #insects #florida #nature #beautiful #photography #garden #naturephotography #floridawildlife

We were fortunate that this owl landed in a tree as we were driving down a dirt road in the early morning hours. When I got out of the car, I somehow had enough time to get my camera out of the trunk to take this before it flew away.
